FG Reassures Nigerians Of 20,000MW Of Electricity By 2016 by dewale2k: 9:16am On Sep 06, 2013
The Federal Government on Thursday in Abuja said it was confident that the nation’s power plants would be generating 20,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity by 2016.

Vice-President Namadi Sambo gave this reassurance when members of the Alumni Association of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, near Jos visited him at the State House.

Mr. Sambo, who highlighted the progress made by the federal government in the power sector, said the country would by 2016 be able to generate adequate electricity.

He said such power generation would assist in the speedy industrialisation of the country.

“When work is completed on all the power plants, electricity supply will be adequate to drive industrialisation in the country.

“These plants include those at the Mambilla, Gurara and the 250 MW plant in Kaduna, as well as the 10 thermal power plants about to be commissioned by President Goodluck Jonathan,’’ the vice-president said.

Mr. Sambo called on members of the alumni association to support President Goodluck Jonathan in actualising the Transformation Agenda of his administration.

“The Transformation Agenda is highly commendable, in terms of the results being recorded in key sectors of the economy.

“It is the vision of President Jonathan to transform the agricultural sector and turn it into a business venture. It is also the vision of the President to make sure every Nigerian child goes to school. That is why Almajiri schools are being built.

“Apart from infrastructure, school uniforms and books are being given to pupils,’’ he said further.

Earlier, members of the association, led by their President, retired Major General Lawrence Onoja, had commended the federal government for ensuring peace and development in the country.

Are we suppose to celebrate or dance azonto because the VP has spoken? When was the last time the government made promises and fulfilled it accordingly? Can't remember any We are tired of empty promises. In fact, they should just SHUT UP. We need results angry

As a result of the transparent Electricity Reforms recently, I believe the 20,000 is very much achievable in 2016. I know this is one area GEJ's administration would stand out.

When previous government made statements like this without anything on ground, I use to doubt.
But for GEJ, considering the massive progress in that sector, I believe.

GEJ FOR 2015

Those clamouring for call off of ongoing strike should start having a re-think. The unserious of Nigeria govenrment is apparent in all sectors. 2016 is another tactics to remain Jonathan in power so as to restore our electricity problem!
You people have got it wrong this time around! Nigerians now know why this government should not be taken serious.
Set of nincommpoos!

Its alarming. Gone are the days when some people stroll down to read sensible comments without even reading the contain of the post. Of course nobody wul like to waste his/her time going through the comments when one is aware that majarity of the comment is filled with kiddos posting End time things in almost all the posts. I think Seun must step up his game or be ready to lose trafic
